AMS Counseling Groups

AMS Counselors, Mrs. Stone and Ms. Ng, will be offering a variety of socioemotional groups to help students overcome struggles that may be affecting them by teaching coping skills and building self-awareness and self-confidence.  Each group meets once per week, a different class period each week, for six weeks. Students are required to make up any classwork they miss while attending a group meeting.  Groups are limited in size and will be run based on student interest.  Students may be in only one group per session.  

If interested, please complete the Group Request form.  A permission slip needs to be completed by the parent/guardian in order to participate.  Permission slips are available in the main office. 

If you have previously turned in a permission slip for first semester, you do not need to turn in an additional slip.  However, you still need to complete the Group Request Form, linked above.

The deadline for signing up for groups is Monday, January 29th.
